Science needs to be a hands on subject. That means that students need materials to touch and investigate. Come and explore the materials I use in the classroom. In this workshop, we will review how to acquire a collection of items for exploration, how to get students outdoors and engaged with nature, and where to find free support to expand your repertoire in the life sciences.
